February Freeze: flare jeans

     These flare jeans are my next February Freeze item. I've only worn them a few times since buying them a year ago; I love the fit and different silhouette, I'm just not sure how to style them for different situations. I think I'd have an easier time styling them if they were a dark wash, too.

     This is really what I wanted to wear, but I decided to save the quirky color combination for the weekend vs. a day when I needed to pop in at work:

  1. If you really wanted to be change the color, you could overdye them black with a couple of bottles of RIT dye. I think they look gorgeous as they are, though!

  2. I love your playful "weekend" look with the green cardigan and the bright purple silk top, that color pairing is fantastic! I always feel the same way about my flare jeans, it seems like they're really hard to style when they actually go with some many items. (Eh, I think I'm just too use to skinnies.) I think the shape of the jeans really works on you like Erin said, they might be an easy dye job if you really don't like the light wash.

  3. Erin - good idea about dyeing them! I find lighter-wash pants more difficult to style, but at the same time I think I'll keep them this color because all my other jeans are darker. I just need to put these in regular rotation vs. being lazy and wearing the other jeans all the time ... :)

  4. Thanks, Katie! Green + purple is a color combo I've been wanting to try for a while. I do like these jeans, but I'm lazy and always reach for my bootcuts. I should just make a point of wearing these once a month or something so I get used to styling them ...
